The U.S. Sub Treasury occupied by City Hall and the Capital of the Province, afterward known as Federal Hall. In front of the building stands a statue of Geo. Washington. On the same spot where the living Washington stood on April 80th, 1789, when he took his oath as the first president of the U.S. The vaults contain immense deposits of coin, the sum stored here has reached $275,000,000 at one time.
